Clearview registers 2,580 students for official count

Clearview School Division has registered just under 2,600 students for the official count that reflects funding from the provincial government for the 2010-2011 school year.

A total of 2,580 students (full-time equivalent) from kindergarten to Grade 12 were enrolled as of Sept. 30, as presented by secretary-treasurer Lewis Hill at the board’s regular meeting Oct. 22.

“We are pleased to see the fairly steady student enrolment across our division,” said Superintendent John Bailey.

“The number of students we have enrolled in our schools has a direct relationship to the amount of funding we receive from the province.”

“Based on the enrolment count of September 30, we are encouraged that our student count across Clearview is higher than was projected in the spring of 2010.”

“Now that we know exactly how many students we have to serve, we will be able to create a more-exact budget for this school year,’ said Bailey.

Trustees set to renew direction and goals

Planning continues to renew and reaffirm the school division’s overall direction and goals, according to a statement by the Clearview School Division.

“In addition to addressing the immediate challenges faced by our division, trustees know that it is also very important to look at the ‘big picture’ and ensure we are heading in the right direction overall,” the statement quoted board chairman Ken Checkel as saying.

“Where are we now? Where do we want to go? How do we get there?”said Checkel, summarizing the questions that will be answered through the exercise.

Trustees will also consult in the community to receive feedback from parents and residents.

“We always value input from our public, our staff and our students, and as we consider these important questions, we will continue to look for their insights in the future,” said Checkel.

“One area we often hear about is busing.”

“Student transportation is a complex system trustees have established a task force to look specifically at this area over the next few months.”

Next meeting Nov. 19

Next regular meeting of the board of trustees is scheduled for Nov. 19 at 9 a.m. at the division office in Stettler open to the public.
